    We both loooove to cook so we switch off. The only thing Fiance doesn’t do is bake and I don’t grill (the grill scares me).

    I really enjoy cooking too so I always do. He will if I’m sick or something (which I think is terribly sweet) but he really only knows how to make like 2 things and has no interest so I happily take over. πŸ™‚

    I’m spoiled.  My husband does the majority of the cooking.  I will occasionally cook on a weekend or if he wants something that I make that he doesn’t, but for the most part, it’s him.

    He just enjoys it far more than I do.  To me, cooking is a chore like any other.  I do it because it needs to be done.  He finds it relaxing and looks forward to doing it…who am I to deprive him of that?

    We switch off.  He tends to do more of the cooking right now because I’m busier at work. We both meal plan and grocery shop on Sundays.

    We split it. When we were commuting out of state for our jobs I got home first, so for about 2 years I did all the cooking during the week. Now he gets home before me so he usually starts dinner. Lately I have been trying to cook extra stuff on the weekend though and freeze it so that we have a quick meal when we get home. Tonight its chicken in the crock pot πŸ™‚

    He’s actually a much better cook than me, so I secretly love that he cooks dinners now πŸ™‚

    I cook everything but he does the dishes.  I like it that way.  Cooking is fun, dishes suck πŸ˜‰

    We both love to cook, and are very good cooks.

    I do most of the cooking but that’s not because I’m the woman, its because we have a nerdy little system where he reads aloud and I cook. We’ve gotten through almost 50 novels that way over the past couple of years. (Yeah, we’re dorks like that).

    We meal plan together on the weekend, and try to limit the shopping to 2-3 times a week, and we switch it up on who goes to the market.

    @lessons: Ditto! And I hate the laundry so he does that. I hate ironing too but so does he so no luck for me there πŸ™

    @gabrielleelise1981: That is so the sweetest thing. I wonder if my guy would do that for me? I love love love to read and to be read aloud to. One of my ex’s did that πŸ™

    I like to cook, and because I enjoy it, I started doing it all the time when we moved in together.  Now, a few months later, I’m kind of resenting the fact that I’m the only cook in the house.  Darling Husband can cook, he cooked forself for many years, but he’s gotten used to me doing it.  I’ve been considering having a chat and asking if he’ll take on the planning, shopping and cooking for at least one meal a week.  I’m definitely the more experienced cook, and I know i like to do it more than he does, but getting to sit on the couch after work now and then would be nice!

    One great thing is that any time I cook the meal, he cleans up afterwards.  So, I know he appreciates that work I put into making the meal and wants to help out.  We have a one cook in the kitchen rule though,  anytime we try to cook at the same time we get frustrated with each other!

    My Fiance is the head chef in our house. He even makes me lunch to take to work each day. He is the best! I do all the dishes and clean up after.

    We both cook. Sometimes one week one of us will cook more than the other but over the course of the month it evens out.

    We cook together – usually I direct and get the ingredients together and cooking, and he does all the chopping/prep work! πŸ™‚
